Beyonce Lip-Synced National Anthem at Obama’s Inauguration

According to the New York Times, Beyonce’ was lip synching during her Inauguration rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner”.

Beyoncé’s performance of the national anthem at President Obama’s second inauguration on Monday was everything it should be: soaring, moving, symbolic and musically superlative. It also wasn’t live.

The R&B diva only pretended to sing, lip-syncing the words to a backing track. What the listeners heard was a version she had recorded at a Marine Corps studio in Washington on Sunday night, a spokeswoman for the Marine Band said.

The spokeswoman, Master Sgt. Kristin duBois, said the weather was good and the Marine Band had no trouble with intonation during most of the prelude and ceremony, nearly two and half hours of music.

Prior to Monday’s performance, this photo on Beyonce’s Instagram account showed her in what appears to be a recording studio.
